No, actually having been in on it, I know that Strand was called and told 
what the system was actually doing or not, they said send it to us, and 
they were the ones that called back saying, "It's got a virus." The boys at 
the Grand were not qualified to diagnose the problems and didn't. As I said 
in my original post:

If it induces problems and can be spread from machine to machine via media 
or connection, it can be considered a virus. And Strand doesn't make that 
much off returns for service - they rake it in if they send somebody TO you.
